A handsome, detached, double fronted 4-bedroom Victorian villa

This handsome Victorian villa has been comprehensively and innovatively modernised and extended, with a contemporary twist, yet retains many original features including; period fireplaces, wooden floors, ornate cornicing and stone mullion windows to the front elevation. Set on a corner plot, enhancing the sense of space and light, the property is approached from a path to the front entrance porch, which boasts a stained leaded glass front door and wrought iron portico. From the reception hall, with stairs to upper floors, doors lead off to the two reception rooms. The sitting room is on the right and the study/playroom on the left; both have bay windows, feature, working fireplaces and wooden floors. At the rear, the contemporary styled, split level kitchen/dining/family room has a bespoke fitted kitchen, with integrated appliances, double oven, 5-burner gas hob, stylish Corian worktops and underfloor heating beneath the slate tiled floor. Steps lead from the dining area down to the family area, with glazed doors providing access to the rear garden. The slate tiled flooring continues through to the spacious utility/boot room, with access to the garden, and ground floor cloakroom. The cellar benefits from some natural light and includes a wine cellar and separate store room, providing useful additional storage space, and houses the boiler and hot water cylinders. On the first floor, the principal bedroom, with dual sash windows and ornate feature fireplace, is complemented by a contemporary styled, en suite shower room with walk-in shower and concealed clothes storage and hanging space. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor, with the landing having built-in airing and storage cupboards and a cleverly designed book case/door, providing access to the charming loft room. The current owner has installed “Lutron” whole house lighting control, network wiring for TV/Broadband and whole-home heating control. All systems can be managed via mobile phone app if desired. The property is in excellent order, having been completely refurbished by the current owners, and is available chain-free.

Outside

Set on a corner plot, the front garden is enclosed by a low brick boundary wall and mature hedging. The rear garden is private and secluded, enclosed by boundary brick wall and wood panel fencing, mainly laid to lawn, with raised flower and shrub borders, and a slate paved terrace that catches the sun for most of the day; ideal for outside entertaining. The garage, with power and light, has vehicular access from Gladstone Road and access to the garden. There is also off street parking for one vehicle, electric car charging point and a side access gate to the garden.

Situation

Horsham's historic market centre, the Carfax with its cobbled streets and varied restaurant quarter, is less than a half-mile walk from the property. The town offers a wide range of facilities including Horsham Park and the Pavilions Leisure Centre, the Swan Walk shopping centre, Horsham Sports Club, and golf at both Mannings Heath and Slinfold Golf & Country Club. The nearby mainline railway station provides easy access to London (London Victoria and London Bridge in approx. 55 minutes) and Gatwick. The nearby A24 offers routes to London, Gatwick, Heathrow and the south coast. There are a number of excellent schools in the state and private sector including Handcross, Cottesmore, Farlington, Christ’s Hospital and Millais.
